The title intrigued me- I read the author’s account of the many career opportunities that were offered to a registered nurse, and was in awe. Most young students today believe that hospitals or doctor’s practices are the only places of employment. I think that anyone who is considering a career in nursing, MUST read this book. It gives an insight to what can be accomplished with a degree in nursing. There were many humorous stories that the author shared, and it gave the opportunity to perceive and appreciate nurses as human beings- just like us! It’s wonderful to have this book providing a behind-the-scenes look at nursing school and nursing jobs. It’a a must read!

“I really enjoyed reading this book. I’ve been a nurse for nine years, still fairly young in my career (so I like to think). It was interesting to see the different paths this author traveled to where she is today compared to my own. This book reminded me how versatile nursing can be as a career and on how many different roads it can lead you.”

“I thought this book was excellent! It was a fun, easy read! In fact, I’ve already reccomended it to people I know – some already nurses and some students. I thought it was well written and researched. I thought you did an unbelievable job relating to your reader, especially in the beginning when you talk about what different and personal situations in your life led to your choice of nursing as your career. Many women that I have met that were going into nursing were women with children and can understand that struggle. I also liked that you touched on different ways you experimented with studying, how you encourage your reader to try different things to discover how they learn best, and you also added finding a way to relieve stress. This is important to many people, and I liked your idea for a study group.
The personal nursing experiences really helped me connect to what I was reading. They were interesting and funny and showed the love you have for what you do. I thought the way you talked about your sister really brought the reader to another level and showed that tragedies/illnesses, such as cancer, can happen to any family and that nurses are not invincible to these things. It helped me understand that we are hurt by the very things we work to save just like our patients are. I realized that as a nurse you are more than just a healthcare provider, but you are who your patients trust and rely on.
I enjoyed the second half of the book as well. I thought your research and factual statistics showed that you really put a great effort into your book so that your reader would have the most accurate and up to date information. I liked that you listed the many different things someone could do with a nursing license, and that it’s not just to use in hospitals or doctor’s offices. You also talked about the many ways to further your career in nursing and take on very important roles in the workplace. Nursing is not always about being a floor nurse who runs around all day, but doesn’t recieve any acknowledgement from adminstration. It gives people a drive to do more and push themselves further.
Overall, I thought it was excellently written and researched all around. I can tell you put alot of effort into it and it payed off.”

“I was immediately attracted to this book by the title. I have been a nurse for 36 years, and I have never regretted my career choice. I found this book to be utterly forthright in describing the myriad of situations that nurses might encounter, both positive and negative.
I was pleased that the author demonstrated, by her own experience, the variety of sub-specialties found in the nursing profession. There are fascinating choices within the field, and just as many academic opportunities. I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering a career in this most fulfilling occupation.”
